    A friend tell me that Johnny Ramone was dead, yesterday...

    this is an article about his death and last minutes.

    Los Angeles, CA (September 15, 2004) -- Johnny Ramone, co-founder and lead guitarist of seminal 70’s punk rock band The Ramones, died in his sleep this afternoon at 3:03 pm in his home in Los Angeles. Ramone had been fighting an ongoing five year battle with prostate cancer. At the time of his death, Ramone was surrounded by friends and family that included his wife Linda Cummings, Eddie and Jill McCormack, Rob and Sherrie Zombie, John Frusciante and Robert Carmine. Additional friends who gathered at the home included Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Lockwood, Pete Yorn, Vincent Gallo, Steve Jones, Talia Shire, Gia Coppola and Jackie Getty. Johnny Ramone, whose real name was Johnny Cummings, co-founded The Ramones in 1974 along with fellow bandmates Joey Ramone, DeeDee Ramone and Tommy Ramone, the only surviving member of the original band. The band, which gained critical acclaim and a huge following in New York’s underground music scene at the time performing at clubs such as CBGB’s, is widely credited for bringing the “punk rock” genre to the forefront. The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. Johnny Ramone is survived by his wife Linda Cummings and his mother Estelle Cummings. His body will be cremated during a private ceremony

    He was 55. Also did you notice that Joey Ramone wasn't on the list of visitors???
    He's still pissed off at Johnny for stealing Linda from him. That's what I heard.

    Damn, didn't a Ramone just die from cancer a couple years ago? Who would've thought it would've been a natural disease that killed these guys? It's still too bad though, dude was the best bad guitar player ever, if you see what I'm saying.

    Isn't Joey dead? The article says "The Ramones in 1974 along with fellow bandmates Joey Ramone, DeeDee Ramone and Tommy Ramone, the only surviving member of the original band."

    My bad... Maybe I got that turned around. I think they might have said that
    Johnny didn't visit Joey. No matter they were still pissed at eachother because
    Johnny stole Linda.
